Free read American Priestess The Extraordinary Story of Anna Spafford and the American Colony in Jerusalem Read & Download American Priestess The Extraordinary Story of Anna Spafford and the American Colony in Jerusalem ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Her credulous followers lived through and closely participated in the titanic upheavals that eventually formed the modern Middle East Written with flair and insight American Priestess provides a fascinating exploration of the seductive power of evangelicalism and raises uestions about the manipulation of religion to serve personal goals A powerful narrative the story sweeps through the dramatic collapse of the Ottoman Empire the establishment of the British Mandate and finally the founding of Israel where Anna’s house in East Jerusalem now the American Colony Hotel stands as an exemplar of beauty and comfort despite its turbulent history. An amazing story of one woman and her capacity to lead and guide many under her wing not always for the betterment of those who followed Her reign began along with her husband Horatio during the Protestant evangelical wave after the Civil Warm when they convinced themselves and a handful of others that the Second Coming was imminent and that they were being called to Jerusalem Even though they were scorned by the American Consul and other missionaries this small group were admired and appreciated by both Muslims and Jews as they cared for the sick and needy of all faiths How far will we go in the name of deity Well written and footnoted
